A Whopper of a Cookie!

These are some of my favorite cookies. They are sooooo humongous and so fab-u-lous!!! Seriously, anyone who ever tries them looooooooooves them!!!!!!! I am going home to PA. tomorrow and my Aunt Martha Jane loves these. She had an 80th birthday a couple of weeks ago and so I thought I would make her some as a belated birthday present. :) She will be so delighted!! My Aunt Anna May also likes them and so I made some for her too. My sister also loves them and she is always asking me when I am making them again and so it will be a nice surprise for her too.

They are called Chocolate Whoppers. They don't have the candy Whoppers in them, but they are humongous and that is why they are called whoppers. Seriously, you use a 1/3 measuring cup to scoop them onto the cookie sheet! Here's what you do:
2 ounces (2 squares) unsweetened chocolate
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
3 ounces (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup sifted flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. powdered instant coffee
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1 cup walnuts
1 cups pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put unsweetened chocolate, the semisweet chocolate and the butter into a double boiler. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In a small bowl use an electric mixer to mix together the eggs, sugar, coffee & vanilla at high speed for 1-2 minutes. Beat in melted chocolate until just mixed. Add in sifted flour and pther ingredients, again until just mixed. Stir in chocolate morsels, walnuts and pecans. Using a 1/3 measuring cup, scoop out the mixture and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for 17 minutes. the outside will be gooey. Let cool "completely" on a parchment paper before removing.

It is so simple, yet unbelievable. Everyone that tries them swears that I should sell them and that I could make a fortune. Ha! For now, I will settle for making them for friends and relatives and enjoying them. Did you notice that they have mucho chocolate and coffee too??? What is better than chocolate and coffee. Genius!!!
